The Big November Update

Holy cow, what a month. I’m sitting here at a sports bar (using their wifi) half-exhausted from everything that’s transpired since my last post here.

me at the launch

The launch for RADIOLAND went great and was well attended!

You can stream my interview with CBC Toronto’s Gill Deacon to assess whether I made any sense (I think I did, though I was very nervous being on live radio).

Speaking of radio interviews, I just completed a wonderful interview with Jamie Tennant for CFMU’s Get Lit. It’s not going to be available until mid-December, but I’ll let y’all know when that happens!

Last but not least…I have a giveaway of sorts. For my launch I decided to do something special and had custom guitar picks made, which I distributed to those who purchased my book. Guess what? I have some left over! So, while quantities last (I’ve never typed that before and it feels weird), if you get in touch and provide a photo of your copy of RADIOLAND (or proof of purchase) I will mail you one of these! Seriously! You can either DM via Twitter (@heymattcahill) or you can email me (matt at mattcahill dot ca).

I’m planning on taking a little time off to regroup (and catch up on my reading!) but I’m planning on getting back into Book Three in December and hopefully deliver the goods in 2023. Take care, and thanks for popping by!


Some love for Radioland

As my second novel, RADIOLAND, nears bookshelves (the pub date has slid by about a week — it was supposed to be the 11th, but more likely the 17th, in case you’re waiting for yours) it’s been nice to see word get out. NO I’M NOT NERVOUS AT ALL WHY DO YOU ASK?

It was picked as one of CBC Books’ top 40 they’re looking forward to for October.

I just finished an interview with Richard Crouse which will be broadcast across the country — you can hear it this Saturday (it will be archived as a podcast which I will link to later).

The book got a nice shout-out from PinkPlayMags.
